French scientists have found the best "poison" for coronavirus

Scientists from the University of Provence experimentally detected a temperature that kills coronavirus. The data obtained are at variance with the previously adopted virus decontamination protocols.

According to RIA NewsScientists have tested whether the coronavirus is completely deactivated when heated to 60 degrees Celsius, as required by the accepted standard protocol for virus deactivation. It turned out that even after an hour of such temperature exposure, some strains of the coronavirus could still multiply. After that, scientists decided to heat the virus to 92 degrees. At this temperature, the virus was completely deactivated within 15 minutes.

For the experiment, the scientists used African green monkey kidney cells infected with the coronavirus strain. The infected cells were placed in different tubes: with a clean medium and with animal proteins, simulating real, not sterile, conditions. This separation showed that in a clean environment 60-degree heating was sufficient. But if the conditions are not sterile, then a more aggressive action is needed.

The results of the study will help develop optimal methods for the deactivation of coronavirus and better protect physicians who work directly with patients with coronavirus.

Previously, researchers from China published data indicating that the temperature is about 60 degrees Celsius coronavirus particles destroysand. At the same time, they noted that at a temperature of about +9 degrees, the virus, on the contrary, spreads more actively.
